Comments:
This was acquired at an estate auction. It had one owner who apparently took very good care of it. The reeves drive was frozen when I got it from sitting. The paint was in great condition, so I simply refurbished it by cleaning the machine and replacing spindle bearings and Reeves drive bearings. Also, the original start switch was not working reliably, so I disassembled it and found lots of sawdust inside. After a good cleaning, it works well again.
